It’s been more than a week since the Oakland Raiders beat the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football, and that time has been a benefit to the walking wounded on the Silver & Black roster. But there are still some areas of concern the team must address as they head into Sunday’s game at St. Louis against an underrated Rams squad. The true question is whether the Raiders can build on the victory momentum and earn another win in 2014.
The Oakland Raiders could be playing their Sunday game against the St. Louis Rams in Indianapolis if the situation in Ferguson escalates.
Right now, the Oakland Raiders are 1-10, and if the season ended today, they’d get the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. There’s not a clear-cut stud or even a lot of depth at the top of the draft next year, so the Silver & Black need to be very smart about their next draft.
The Raiders played a strong game in gaining their first win of the season over their arch-rivals from Kansas City, and rookie quarterback Derek Carr deserves much of the credit for leading the game-winning drive and also hanging in and improving throughout the long season.
The 4-7 St. Louis Rams may seem to be weak at first glance, but as coached by long-time NFL man Jeff Fisher, the team once referred to as the “Lambs” is anything but right now. Remember, St. Louis has wins over Denver, San Francisco and Seattle this year—and they almost beat San Diego last weekend with a third-string quarterback. They’re still good.
How do you explain the Raiders’ first victory in over a year? If your rookie quarterback Derek Carr, you simply “praise the name of Jesus.”
The old adage is that on any given Sunday, the worst team in the league can beat the best team. Well, on Thursday night, the Oakland Raiders finally won their first game of the season, beating the Kansas City Chiefs at the Coliseum. The Chiefs were tied for the AFC West division lead and had won five straight games, while the Silver & Black had gone more than a year without winning a game. On any given Thursday?
Derek Carr threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to James Jones with 1:42 remaining and the Oakland Raiders snapped a 16-game losing streak with a 24-20 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night.
Fans hoping to see the Raiders take on the Chiefs Thursday night in Oakland won’t have to pay very much for seats.
The Oakland Raiders have a short turnaround this week between their Sunday loss in San Diego and their Thursday night matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs at the Coliseum. That means not a lot of healing time—both for those who played against the Chargers and those who did not.
